A very strong British cast is being assembled by director Rupert Wyatt, who helmed the outstanding The Escapist, for his adaptation of the beloved Sebastian Faulks novel, Birdsong.

Reports thus far suggest that Michael Fassbender, Paddy Considine and the great Brian Cox have all signed up to star in the film.

Wyatt compared the story to The English Patient in its sweeping, World War-backdropped love story. The novel is very well loved over here so it could well make Wyatt’s career, something which seems deserved following The Escapist.
